The Nashville Church of Scientology supports the good works of others. Today's highlight: the Celebrate Nashville Cultural Festival on October 5, 2013.
Since 1995, Nashville has celebrated the diversity of the people who live and work in the city through a cultural exchange known as Celebrate Nashville. The festival is scheduled for October 5, 2013 and will take place at Centennial Park.
"In a city where one in six residents is foreign-born, the Celebrate Nashville Cultural Festival is not only one of Nashville's favorite and most vibrant festivals, but also a celebration and reminder of what makes Nashville a great place to live," according to celebratenashville.org.
The festival was formerly known as the Celebration of Cultures and began at Scarritt Bennett Center, a conference, retreat, and education center in Nashville. As the festival grew, Scarritt Bennett formed a partnership with Metro Parks and began holding the annual event at Centennial Park. Last year, the festival drew more than 40,000 people.
In 2012, Scarritt Bennett passed the torch to Metro Parks to solely run the festival. It was then that the name changed from Celebration of Cultures to Celebrate Nashville.
